Fairmont Bab Al Bahr

Abu Dhabi's waterfront retreat

Take a strikingly modern facade combined with exceptional service and a pristine beachfront locale and you’ve got the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star Fairmont Bab Al Bahr. In addition to a serene stretch of sand, this elegant retreat boasts an Olympic-sized swimming pool (complete with separate family and children’s areas), the first Abu Dhabi restaurant from celebrity chef Marco Pierre White and unrivaled views of the stunning Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque.

Our Inspector's Highlights
  • This Four-Star resort puts you within arm's reach of some of Abu Dhabi's most popular attractions, including the world's first Ferrari theme park, the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix race circuit and Yas Waterworld, the UAE's largest waterpark. 
  • Fashionistas will be in retail heaven with the brand-new Yas Mall, situated within walking distance of the Fairmont Bab Al Bahr. Explore the Venetian-themed souk (market) before resting your weary feet by taking a leisurely abra (boat) ride through the canals. 
  • The Fairmont's 369 contemporary guest rooms and suites embrace an elegant organic theme using materials such as marble, walnut wood panelling and bamboo flower-themed furnishings to enhance, rather than detract from, the stellar gulf views through the floor-to-ceiling windows. 
  • From elegant afternoon tea to succulent steaks from an award-winning chef, the culinary offerings run the gamut at this Four-Star hotel.
